Tuffmail is designing a new logo

Any creative members here? There's a contest going on to design a new logo for Tuffmail.

I'd be curious to see the results, myself (not that I ever had a problem with Tuffmail's existing logo) I wonder what brought this on?

You'd think they'd be more worried about their 1987 website design..

Maybe this is a part of a (coming) new web design.

You're probably right.. But this idea would negate my joke.

To me the logo conveys work, solid, reliable, no nonsense -- just what Tuffmail's public image is.

It is indicative of the cog wheel of a watch janusz! and reminds one of how Tuffmail (like an old time watch) just keeps 'ticking away'

Tuffmail is geared towards technically-inclined people

I'm sure that the designer took that description into consideration, and Tuffmail liked it.
